BUSQR, the world’s first live donation solution, lets musicians earn from fans while they live streaming and South Africa is quickly embracing it

With many years’ experience in all different parts of the entertainment industry, the team behind BUSQR (Jon Savage, Carl Booysen) consists of lovers of performance who have spent decades building platforms designed to help struggling artists.

So how does it work? Well it’s pretty simple really. Their unique BUSQR code is easily embeddable into almost any live stream, so you receive donations while you stream in real time to raise money for your next project.

You also get paid within 48 hours which is a bonus. You only need one BUSQR code and you can continue to use it for as long as you like, so the more you stream, the more you earn.

“Gamers have been doing this for years. BUSQR brings gaming culture to the music industry,” Savage explained to me last week when we discussed his new joint venture.

BUSQR is the ultimate tool to help artists pay the rent when live gigs are scarce. Along with your BUSQR code, the team also provide video tutorials on how to get the best out of your audience and how to maximize your earning potential.

But are there any hidden costs? Not really. BUSQR charge a 5% admin fee and the rest is all yours.

Currently they are only compatible with SNAPSCAN but in the next 2 weeks, they will be compatible with many other pay systems worldwide.
